has been around for 30 years on an international level. Founded by Larry Schultz (who was the private yoga instructor to the rock band the Grateful Dead!), the first It’s Yoga opened its doors in San Francisco in 1989. After Larry had been practicing Ashtanga for a while, his friends and family began to notice changes in him – he looked happier, healthier and just generally better. Whenever they would ask him why, he would reply: “It’s Yoga!”
And so he said to himself – if I ever open a studio, I’ll call it “It’s Yoga”, as I’m saying it all day long!
It’s Yoga is an international family – while each studio is independent, we do share the same sequences and the same Teacher Training Programme and support each other as a community worldwide.
It’s Yoga Brighton opened in 2017, moving into the former ‘Port Hall Tavern’ – now Milligan House – near Seven Dials and Preston Park. The building was built in the 1870s and, as a former pub, has a history of being a place for the local community to gather.
The purpose of It’s Yoga Brighton is to be a loving, spacious and nurturing environment within which people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds experience the magic of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and The Rocket, connecting to our breath and our authentic voice as we invite transformation and growth on and off the mat. In this way, we have a thriving, grounded and connected community supporting each other in abundance and bliss.
We want It’s Yoga to feel like home.
